Hurd La Rinconada Gallery & Guest Homes
Reviewed September 10, 2011

This was our second stay at La Rinconada and we just didn't believe it could be as great as the first....but if anything it was BETTER!!!! We've stayed in the Apple House both times and it is just the most beautiful little cottage! Yes, Hurds and Wyeths and photos of the area....and OH WHAT AN AREA!! We woke up every morning to the most beautiful sunrise coming over the mountains!! Carried our coffee out to the little patio, sat at the table and looked out over the mountains and hills to the south! I wish there were words to properly describe the Sentinel Ranch area!!! ZOWIE just isn't enough! You feel like you are very far away from the rest of the world and yet in the distance you can tell that ITS still there.......but YOU are NOT!!
The house is well decorated...but not really DECORATED....just homey and comfortable and wonderful! It is surrounded by trees and a little white picket fence in front, and a stucco fence in back.
There are wonderful trails for walks and you are encouraged to explore to your heart's content! We got in late at night this time and were escorted in by some of the wildlife of the area but when we got to "our" little cottage Tiffanie and Munchie had been there earlier, had the fan going and the porch light on for us!!
And what can I say about our friend, Tiffanie and precious Munchkin!?!? Miss Munchie is the official Gallery greeter and just the cutest little pooch!! Tiffanie is VERY knowledgeable about the Gallery, art, area...and probably knows as much about the Hurd family and Peter Hurd as anyone! She is a delightful and friendly lady who brings light and life to the Gallery!
Being on the ranch is like being in a Peter Hurd...or Michael Hurd painting!
Visiting with Michael was a great plus! If you are a Peter Hurd fan, as we are, the personal stories and anecdotes made Peter come to life! And Michael is such an interesting person....and INCREDIBLE ARTIST!!
We were able to spend 5 days in "our" little Apple House....and each day was full of joys and surprises of its own!
Thank you, Tiffanie and Michael for a vacation we will never forget!! We can't WAIT to visit you again next year!!!

We have stayed several times and use the quite surrounding as a vacation within a vacation. Michael and Tiffany do a teriffic job of making us feel special and welcome. The Orchard House has a panoramic view of an old orchard and the Hondo Valley. The place is rustic with many paintings, clean, and a welcome relief from the typical hotels. I recommend it to all who enjoy the beauty and enchantment of New Mexico.

After managing to regain composure for the hillarious wit of owner Michael Hurd, we were shown our casita which was BEUATIFUL Appointed in fine antiques with art from the Hurds, a Wyeth or two etc - you get the idea. A night at the museum? Ah, but there's a brook tumbling across stones outside. It's fresh. Lilacs blooming. This was sublime. And comfortable. So we stayed another night - because we didnt want to leave.
